Social Security Disability

If you are under age 65 and can no longer work due to disabling illness or injury, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Unfortunately, the process of applying for benefits is often complicated and approximately two thirds of the 2.5 million people who apply for benefits each year have their initial application denied. Many of these claims are denied because they do not contain enough information for your claim to be approved.

If you are thinking about applying for Social Security disability benefits, you should strongly consider hiring an experienced Social Security disability law firm. Statistics from the Social Security Administration (SSA) show your chances improve greatly when you hire experienced legal counsel to represent you. A lawyer who is well versed in the policies and procedures of the SSA can ensure your claim is correctly filled out and contains the correct medical documentation.
